)-- Monetary donations provide San Jacinto College Foundation with much needed support
Across the country, colleges and their foundations have experienced a pause in funding due to the recession. Businesses and families have sized down their charitable giving and educational funding has been tremendously reduced. Career Uniforms, of Houston, Texas has stepped in to help in an immense way- through the gift of a large monetary donation. The medical apparel company has given to several different colleges throughout its twenty years of existence.
Career Uniforms, headquartered in Houston, provides medical apparel and accessories to a variety of medical professionals. Giving back to its local community, through the college foundation and its students, is one of the company’s annual goals.
The San Jacinto College Foundation was given a check for over $7,000 to be used for a variety of its student’s needs. Part of the donation is specifically going to support the Nursing Program. Mr. Radia, who once was a medical practitioner, understands the importance of education and the cost associated with it.
“We’ve been in the Houston community for over 20 years and realize the importance of giving back,” said Career Uniforms Vice President, Jyoti Radia. “This foundation does an excellent job of meeting the needs of all of their students at San Jacinto College and we’re honored to donate to their cause.”
